One of the most reliable methods of re-connecting lost pets to their owners is through the use of microchips. West Point Animal Clinic encourages all of our clients in the West Point, Starkville, Columbus, and Aberdeen areas of Mississippi to have their beloved pets chipped. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted just under the skin between the shoulder blades of your pet. This microchip, although small, contains a code that is unique to you and your pet. It is a regular practice at clinics and shelters to scan your pet for a microchip assuring that a happy reunion is on the way for those who have become separated from their family pets. For more information on microchipping your pet, please contact West Point Animal Clinic.
